Actually, I think it's a feature.
See, it uses different layers to mark areas which should be preserved 
and areas to be removed (just paint it with paintbrush and go).
Unfortunately, it's nowhere near as fast as the one shown in the video. 
And, as a corollary, it can't be used to see the difference while resizing.
Someone mentioned (on some blog) that this plugin uses some generic math 
library and would work better with specialized algorithms.
